The work of local artists will once again be professionally presented and shown for the annual Washington Art Association Show and Sale to be held on Sunday, March 25.

She is highly valued for her skills and accomplishments in the Baton Rouge community, where she has hung and curated major shows at the Shaw Center and others.

She has also completed courses in numerous facets of fine art as well as interior design, interior space planning, estate dissolution, museum de-accession and fine art sales.

The art association is pleased to once again have the services of this friend of parish artists.

The show will held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 25 at the home of Sara Bateman Nelson, located at the intersection of Louisiana Highways 25 and 38 at Clifton, about 6 miles north of Franklinton. The address and entrance is 28035 Winfred Bateman Road.
